Queen Elizabeth II scopes out the Iron Throne
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II visited the Game of Thrones set—and considered adding another realm to her domain.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II considered adding another realm to the 16 she already has. Visiting the interior sets of the popular series Game of Thrones at the Paint Hall Studios, the queen took a look at the infamous Iron Throne.
While the Internet as a whole clamored for Her Majesty to take a seat, the 88-year-old monarch decided not to. (If she had, however, it might have looked like this.)

The actors and crew behind Game of Thrones seemed pleased with the royal visit—everyone, that is, except the policeman behind the queen in this photo.

The queen did not reveal if she and the Duke of Edinburgh were fans of Game of Thrones. But if anyone could bring peace to the Seven Kingdoms, it’s her.
